Nation’s firms welcome in Latin America, survey finds
Major Latin American countries have a generally positive impression of Chinese enterprises, with 73 percent of respondents saying they feel good about Chinese firms, according to a report released on Tuesday.
Brazil had the best overall perception of Chinese companies, with 81 percent of those surveyed expressing a positive impression of the firms’ local operations, the report said. That was followed by Mexico with 73 percent, Chile with 71 percent, Peru with 71 percent and Argentina with 67 percent.
The report’s findings indicate Chinese companies are becoming deeply integrated in global economic development as national strength improves and the Belt and Road Initiative advances, said Du Zhanyuan, head of the China Foreign Languages Publishing Administration.
